MIM: Predator Nutrition Bloggers Event

Meow, so today's blog post is going to be about the Predators Nutrition Bloggers Event that i went to via Joe Blogs. Now this may be a new sort of post as I haven't done a lot of posts regarding health/fitness so I hope that you enjoy it and such.



So, a while ago, Joe Blogs Network emailed me as I had asked about a bloggers event in Leeds and I had found out that it was an event hosted by Predator Nutrition and BSN (a supplement brand.) Now, as you all probably know, I'm not a health/fitness sort of person but I thought that I would go to it and find out what it was all about/why people use supplements and everything like that...

On the day, I went into Trinity Leeds and found a few bloggers (Caroline and Sarah) as they knew where to go compared to me. We chatted about our blogs and what we do in our spare time and what to expect of the event whilst we walked to the Predator Nutrition store.

Once we had got to the store, we were greeted by a lovely lady... I can't remember her name but as it was quiet, she ticked our names off the list to get in and talked to us about some of the new range. She also talked to us about the store and said that the store had gone for an open space sort of vibe to make it more welcoming as protein products, supplements etc sound scary to some which is pretty true. She talked to us about some of the products including some milkshake inspired shakes and chocolate protein bars and some other great protein/food products...

The lovely woman disappeared and then came back with a goodie bag containing some of the new protein shakes, earphones, vest and some other great gym inspired things which may motivate me a bit more to actually try and get fit instead of procrastinating and not doing anything...

We then talked to Carly Tierney who is a part of the BSN team and we talked to her about how she got into the career of body building and has been crowned Miss Bikini Tall... We found out that she doesn't want to conform to the norm of women being masculine within sports and that she had beaten an eating disorder and thats the reason of how she got into what she loves. Caroline and Sarah asked her a few more questions whilst I awkwardly stood there and took it all in...

After talking to Carly, we were offered a sample of the new protein shakes... I tried Dragonfruit which was slightly sweet and somehow reminded me of Calpol... It would go well if you love sweet things and need something to perk you up in the morning for a run/workout as I instantly felt like I had more energy within me...

All three of us then went up to meet Flex. Flex was the reason why this event had happened. He is Mr Olympia and a well known body builder that hails from Wales and he had got into body building via his old career of rugby. I talked to him for a few moments and he seemed lovely which shows that not everyone in the sporting industry is mean and only in it for themselves. We took a picture together and said bye...



We then decided to go as it was getting a bit hectic. We saw Carly outside. She offered us a Salted Caramel version of the drink that we had sampled. I liked this one a lot more as the caramel was sweet but the salt slightly cut through it making not so sweet and reminded me of a caramel latte or something of that kind. I feel like if I was going to buy any of the drinks then personally I would go for the Salted Caramel one but everyone has a different opinion and taste palate.

We went for a healthy juice drink to carry on our health kick. I ordered a green shake with avocado and a lot more of other tasty greens in with some added whey powder. You couldn't taste the whey and the drink was slightly sweet but the greens added such a fresh taste so I felt good for drinking it...

I hope that you have enjoyed this blog post. I can't thank the guys at Joe Blogs, Predator Nutrition and BSN UK enough for putting this event on. They have done their own blog post and video which I'll link below and I hope to see you tomorrow for another MIM post!
